  • Really amazing statue of Mother Mary. The only thing you see is a white beautiful Mary standing in Sky and ready to offer her blessings with her hands wide open. From the church inside you can see behind the altar the lady of Lebanon statue, really stunning. Do take memories back from the souvenirs shop.
  • Extremely peaceful and serene place. This area probably has the best views in all of Lebanon. The Lady of Lebanon statue overlooks the city of Jounieh, from which you would ride the telefrique to get to this place. It is strongly recommended to rake the cable car ride, instead of just arriving here in a car.
  • One of the best places on earth! Magical view.. great place for prayer. This place is one the most relevant touristic and religious spot. It's a bit far from the highway but it's worth it as you will be able to get a wonderful feeling there. The statue is huge as well as the church. The best month to visit is in May as it's the month of our Holy Mary and you will be able to see thousands of people there lighting candles and praying
  • One of the best preserved places in Lebanon to pray :)
